Well, since it is not a holiday for me, all I can say is "Wish I were There"

Julian, give me a call if you think your going to make it but just be a bit late, and I'll keep an eye out for you.
Let me know if you want me to grab you a ticket, just in case.

I was still in a meeting when this was taking place :( I got a message from Darrin (Thanks!) that it was sold out through today though, so it doesn't sounds like any of us is going!

Yep, all was for naught we got there in time to find it was sold out, all shows all times until tomorrow.

Oh well, swing and a miss.

To answer that: "Yes" and "No".

Last heard, it has made $1.6 BILLION worldwide and has passed Star Wars as third highest grossing movie of all time (behind Titanic and Spider-Man). So yeah, it's raking in the moolah.

But, it's not good - at least IMHO. In fact, it's pretty terrible story-wise. But I still tell everyone to go see it in the theater in 3D (not in 2D) for the experience. I won't give spoilers to support my opinion of the story, though.
